The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which many of you have probably been meaning to watch on Amazon, really glowed up at the Emmys this year. It basically cleaned house.
Amy Sherman-Palladino won her first TWO Emmys, for Outstanding Writing and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series. Both were for the show's pilot.
Sherman-Palladino is also known for having created Gilmore Girls, which won only one Emmy during its tenure — for Outstanding Makeup.
Alex Borstein, who plays comedy manager Susie Myerson, took home the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy. She used her speech to encourage women to sit on public toilet seats more often.
And Rachel Brosnahan, who plays the title character, won for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy. In her speech, she encouraged everyone in the audience to vote.
Finally, the show itself won Outstanding Comedy Series, making it a big night for divorcees in the 1950s who dream of becoming stand-up comics.
The show also won the Golden Globe for the same category back in January. Rachel Brosnahan (Outstanding Lead Actress), Alex Borstein (Outstanding Supporting Actress), and Amy Sherman-Palladino (both Writing and Directing) all won awards earlier in the night. “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” also won a trio of Creative Arts Emmys last weekend, including awards for Casting, Editing, and Music Supervision.
On stage at the Microsoft Theater, series executive producer Daniel Palladino accepted the award on behalf of the cast and crew.
“We just wrapped a day and a half ago [on] Season 2 and we already miss working with you guys. We’re already looking forward to Season 3,” Palladino said.
So congrats to everyone involved in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel! Now let's all buckle up for Season 2.
